If you’re looking for a fun and unique way to spend time with friends or family, playing games on a dartboard is a great option. While most people are familiar with traditional games like 301 or cricket, there are many other games that can be played on a dartboard that are both challenging and entertaining. Here are some of the most popular games to try out.
Baseball is a fun and easy game that can be played with any number of players. The objective is to “score runs” by hitting certain areas of the dartboard with your darts. For example, hitting the section labeled “1st base” would result in a single run, while hitting “home run” would result in four runs. The game is typically played over nine innings, with each player taking turns throwing three darts per inning.
As the name suggests, Killer is a game that rewards precision over accuracy. The objective is to hit specific areas of the dartboard with your darts, with each successful hit earning you a “kill shot.” The player with the most kills at the end of the game is the winner. The catch is that once a player has successfully hit a particular area of the board, it becomes “dead” and cannot be targeted again by any other player. This means that players must be strategic in choosing which sections to aim for and when to take their shot.
Around the World
Around the World is a classic dart game that is both simple and challenging. The objective is to hit each section of the dartboard in order, starting with “1” and ending with “20,” and then finishing with the “bullseye.” Players take turns throwing three darts per turn, and must hit the designated section before moving on to the next one. The catch is that if a player misses the designated section three times in a row, they are out of the game.
Cricket is a popular game that is played with two teams of one or more players each. The objective is to “close out” certain areas of the dartboard with your darts, and then score points by hitting those areas again. For example, hitting three “18s” would “close out” that area, and hitting subsequent “18s” would earn the player points. The game is typically played over a set number of rounds, with the winner being the team with the most points at the end of the game.
